One of the finest gold issues of the Ptolemaic Dynasty, c. 285-246 BCE. The Greek inscription says "Divine(Theon) Brothers(Adelphon)" or "of divine siblings". This issue was produced by the second Ptolemaic ruler, Ptolemy II Philadelphus (284-246 BCE). He was given the epithet Philadelphus, which means 'sister (or brother)-loving' in Greek, due to his marriage, in Egyptian style, to his sister Arsinoe II.

The Temple of Kom Ombo is an unusual double temple built during the Ptolemaic dynasty in the Egyptian town of Kom Ombo. Some additions to it were later made during the Roman period. The building is unique because its 'double' design meant that there were courts, halls, sanctuaries and rooms duplicated for two sets of gods. The southern half of the temple was dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek, god of fertility and creator of the world with Hathor and Khonsu.
